North Carolina Fiancé Visa Attorney
Foreign nationals who are engaged to be married to a United States citizen may be eligible to apply for a K-1 fiancé(e) visa, and a K-2 visa for dependent children of a foreign fiancé(e). This type of visa can allow your fiancé(e) to legally enter and remain in the United States. Once you are married, your spouse will then be able to apply for an adjustment of status which will allow him or her to obtain a green card and become a legal permanent resident.
If you are looking to secure a K visa for your fiancé, contact Brown Immigration Law for more information. We realize that the family immigration process is not always as simple as most people would expect it to be. One wrong form, or a minor error on an application or petition, and you could easily find yourself fighting to try and get your loved one the proper immigration status he or she needs.
Types of K Visas for Engaged Couples and Children
K-1 Visa: The fiancé or fiancée of a U.S. citizen may apply for a K-1
visa, allowing them to immigrate under a non-immigrant status.
- The U.S. citizen must file a Form I-129F, Petition for Alien Fiancé(e) and the two individuals must be married within 90 days of the foreign fiancé(e)'s entering the United States under a K-1 visa.
- Other requirements include having all former marriages legally terminated by divorce, death or annulment, and that the two fiancés must have met at least once within the two years of filing the petition.
- K-2 Visa: This visa is available for the dependent children of a foreign fiancé(e). The children must be under 21 years old and unmarried. The names of all such children must be listed on the Form I-129F filed by the U.S. citizen when requesting a K-1 visa.
